CUSTOMIZE the 14ers.com Home Page

Postby BillMiddlebrook » Fri Feb 02, 2007 2:54 pm

I've implemented some changes that allow you to change your home page settings if your browser allows Cookies. Initially, you can change the number of forum threads that display on the home page AND the option to specify whether you have a slow or fast Internet connection - this will cause larger versions of the random photos to be displayed on the home page.

Just click on the Display Settings link at the top of the home page to make the adjustments.

This is just a start. I plan on making tons of enhancements to the site that allow you to take advantage of a large screen resolution and a high-bandwidth Internet connection. More to come...

As always... a way cool addition to the site, Bill. I love the random display of pictures you added a while back so getting even bigger pics is great.

Thanks for all your hard work on the site...

Is this to cool or what?

You know what I think might be a nice feature. I bookmark a lot of threads for future reference such as gear recommendations, campsites, TH info on various other peaks than 14ers, etc. . . Do you think it would be beneficial at all to be able to save threads to your profile somehow? Just a thought.

alanb: Thanks. Right now I'm still in the process of re-creating the larger images for most of those random home page pictures. There are about 60 and I should have the rest of them done tomorrow.

FlyGirl: I'm starting a list of things that can be customized and will take a look at further changes within the forum thread list that displays on the right side of the home page. Maybe there are a few different options I can provide.

For the home page, the goal is to allow each of us to maximize our browser display page. The next step will be to apply this throughout portions of the site.

Any more improvements and I'll have to take a computer class. My computer skills suck. Still, an excellent site and I'll try and keep up.
Thanks Bill

There are currently 62 random photos that come up on the 14ers.com home page. If you ever want to view a Flash slideshow of the images, click on this link:

If you change your home page Display Settings to "High-Speed Connection", a link to the slideshow will be displayed at the bottom of the home page.

To provide more flexibility when printing routes, I've used the site Display Settings page to provide more customization. You can now specify if you want to resize the photos to optimize space (and ink). I also added an option to print (or not) the route profile and topo map.

Once you make the changes, they stay in a cookie for 180 days or until you clear your cookie cache in the browser. Check it out...

I take it that stacking the forum / TR's / Conditions has been permanently done away with in favor of tabbing them? My home page is now tabbed and do not see the option of stacking in the user preferences.

My preference had been to stack them instead of tabbing. No big deal if can only now tab, but in case I'm missing something I thought I'd ask.
